Sometimes You Just Feel Like Hanging Around



A few weeks ago Kiko decided he didn't feel like rushing along the O-line. After all, why hurry from the Ape House to the Think Tank? Why be fettered by schedules, by the need to get from here to there without appreciating the journey in between?

Why not just stay suspended above the excited visitors for a good twenty minutes?

Why not, indeed?

That's a GREAT photo! It made me smile from ear to ear, as did the commentary. And now for an environmental message: Everyone, avoid products made with palm oil. Its use devastates the rain forests of Borneo and Sumatra, the last remaining refuges of the endangered orangutans.

Always ask myself who is really doing the observing?

@AV: Thanks for pointing this out. In fact, a good resource is the Union of Concerned Scientists' Recipes for Success: Solutions for Deforestation-Free Vegetable Oils (http://www.ucsusa.org/global_warming/solutions/forest_solutions/deforestation-free-vegetable-oils.html).
@Patti: I wonder that *all* the time at the zoo. With great apes, the answer is usually pretty clear...
